Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Nestled between the Sella Massif and the Fodoma Valley, next to the Marmolada mountain range, you'll find the Hotel Garni Serena. This is a cosy family run hotel where the staff are very welcoming and will look after you throughout your stay. You'll be feeling seriously relaxed after a week spent here. If you just want to get out on the slopes with as little fuss as possible, all you have to do is grab your warm boots from the heated boot room and step out of the front door. We do love a ski-in, ski-out hotel!

You might also want some time to relax, which is where the spa comes in. The spa is decorated in a rustic Italian style and covered in earthy colours, which will keep you feeling zen every second you're in there. There's more than one sauna, so no need to crowd in with other people, and the sensory showers will keep you feeling fresh and clean after your spa session.

End your days with a glass of wine in the little bar and catch up with family or friends in the traditional Tyrolean 'stua'. A 'stua' is a friendly meeting place typical of the region which has been decorated entirely in wood. It is perfect for winding down with your group at the end of the day.

Arabba

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sellaronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.
